Judgement In The Case Of R.v.Downey


That this Assembly notes with grave concern the detail contained within the judgement of Mr Justice Sweeney in the case of R.v.Downey; expresses disgust at the heretofore deliberately hidden actions of the British Government and Sinn Féin revealed in the judgement of issuing these letters to those described as “on-the -runs” and the detrimental consequence of those acts to justice; further notes the undermining impact such disclosures will have on recent discussions on dealing with the past; and calls on the British Government to urgently and effectively address the gross injustice to the many victims who will suffer further because of these shameful actions and wider damage to the rule of law, and to take swift action to rebuild confidence and trust by conducting a judge-led inquiry.
